London: England skipper Kevin Pietersen has rubbed salt on Ricky Ponting's wounds, claiming that Australia's drubbing at the hands of South Africa in the first Test in Perth brought a smile in his face.

Ahead of next year's Ashes series where England will take on the world champions, Pietersen has said he was left chuckling on the field when he came to know about the result.

"When I was batting I saw on the scoreboard South Africa had won - and it made me chuckle a little bit," he was quoted as saying in 'The Sun'.

England will take on Australia in the five-Test match Ashes Series in July next year.

"It's going to be interesting, that Ashes series. They've got two more Tests in Australia and then three back in South Africa. I'm sure there's going to be some very entertaining cricket played in the next five Test matches," Pietersen said.
